Having spent a number of years in ministry in a variety of settings, I am delighted to be teaching at IPS working with students who are preparing for various types of ministry in parishes, non-profit organizations, healthcare, retreat centers, etc. Theology comes alive when it informs and is informed by our everyday life experience.
